Ashlyns is a popular and oversubscribed school.  We became a full secondary school in September 2013 following the re-organisation of the education provision in Berkhamsted, and now have over 1,200 students. The school has undergone significant refurbishment in recent years with continuing improvements in progress as we prepare to expand to eight forms of entry in September 2017.  This is an exciting time to join our school and make your impression as we continue to develop and build on our success. The school was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in September 2014 and is focused on rapid improvement in results with the aspiration to be rated ‘Outstanding’ at our next inspection.
